The Hydrocephalus Association serves as the primary nexus for research on hydrocephalus, a condition defined by an abnormal, excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the cavities of the brain. Hydrocephalus affects over 1 million people in the U.S. alone. Approximately 1-2 babies for every 1000 births are born with hydrocephalus, but anyone can get hydrocephalus at any time through a brain injury or infection, among other reasons, or as part of the aging process.
The WALK to End Hydrocephalus is the Hydrocephalus Association’s largest annual fundraising event, raising nearly $2 million last year thanks to more than 17,000 participants in 42 locations across the U.S. When you take part in ending hydrocephalus, you join a family of 1 million+ Americans who are fighting for a cure every day.
The 2019 Baltimore WALK to End Hydrocephalus is to be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at West Shore Park- Inner Harbor, Baltimore. For more information on how you can take part in this event, please visit our website: https://bit.ly/2YhXr3o or email us at [email protected]
